This blog began as a memoir-in-progress written in more-or-less real-time. Unlike most memoirs, where the protagonist thinks about all the things she’s learned and benefits from some perspective before finishing her story, this tale serialized it as it happened during the first 11 months of renovation. My goal was to write at least a few sentences every day and despite helping with a major remodel, I managed that much.

At some point in November 2018, I determined the memoir in progress had run its course; I’m now attempting to edit the raw material into a book. Stay tuned for that. And Church Sweet Home—the blog—continues. Only I don’t write it in past tense, and the posts aren’t serialized anymore. No more “our story so far” and “tomorrow” teasers. Each entry stands alone. I write about further progress we’ve made on the renovation and show off how we’re decorating the spaces.
